RTS welcomes Spring Intern, May Saetern!

Program & Development Intern, May Saetern

We are very excited to welcome new intern, May Saetern (senior at University of Washington), to the RTS team this spring! May began her internship on Tuesday--just in time to jump right in with the beginning stages of planning for Spring Rebuilding Day '13 (April 27th). We can already tell that May is going to be a tremendous asset these next few months!


Q: Where do you go to school? What are you studying/thinking about majoring in? What are some of your hopes for future career aspirations?

I’m currently a senior at the University of Washington, majoring in International Studies. After graduation, I hope to work with an organization that works with refugees ranging from stages of pre-relocation to post-relocation.

Q: Why do you believe in the mission of Rebuilding Together Seattle?

By allowing volunteers to participate in various rebuilding and repairing projects locally, I believe RTS is creating closer communities and bringing all walks of life together through the promotion of living in a safe and warm home.

Q: What are you excited about the most in regard to your internship position with RTS?

I’m excited to work with the local community and to be a part of the help that is given to the people RTS serves.

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself – what are some of your interests outside of school and work?

When I’m not studying or working, I like to read, play tennis, watch movies, and catch up on my favorite T.V. shows.

May at the Lantern Festival in Thailand!

Say hi to May!
